If you want to have a business – or if you want to sell anything at all – you need to have a website of your own. But a website can cost money, and when you are trying to use your money to start your business, it can be tough to spend extra on a website. Because of this, lots of people who are just starting their business want to know if they can build their own website. If you have ever wondered this yourself, the answer – believe it or not – is that you absolutely can build your own website, as long as you know a few things.The first thing you need to do, before you can build your own website, is to register your own domain name. It usually only costs about $10 per year to have your domain name, so the toughest part is actually finding a domain name that works for you. If you or your company has a unique name, this should be easy; it can be much harder, though, if your desired name is already taken! The next step – since you will want to be able to set up and run everything on your own – is finding a template that lets you do everything autonomously. Find a template such as a WordPress template, and you will be able to make any changes or adjustments to your site that you want, whenever you want. And if you decide to design a website on your own, you will want to make sure you put in some time doing research. The first thing you need to research is basic HTML coding; this is not very complicated stuff, but it will enable you to have total control over many aspects of your website. And the other bit of research you will need to do is make sure you find out as much as you can about the process of building a website. For only $25 on Amazon, you can get the book @@AMAZONTEXT;0596527527;Learning Web Design@@ – which is the best resource available, and is usually $45! You will be able to start building your website as soon as you know what you are doing – and what’s more, you will be able to make it look exactly the way you want it to look!
